The most delightful and exciting dual love-story, teeming with incidents encountered on an exhilarating motor chase across Spain. The scenes are contemporary with the recent Royal marriage, and King Alphonso is one of the characters.

A magnificent description of the coronation bull-fight, with an unexpected and highly dramatic climax, fittingly culminates this sparkling story.
